The documentation began in our patch post last night, and more than a day later, Beta Patch 15 has cemented its reputation as the the worst patch ever. The servers have been down for more than 36 hours now, and worse yet, from the latest update the tech guys have given up and gone home to finally get some sleep. Things will improve tomorrow afternoon… at the soonest.
Update 10:23 p.m. PDT: We are continuing to work to resolve issues that developed during the deployment of Beta Patch 15. The beta test will be unavailable until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide another update tomorrow, March 18 at 02:00 p.m. PDT.
I tried logging on a couple of hours ago and to my surprise, it worked fine. I made a new Barbarian and rushed through the early content, until just when I entered Cathedral level 1 and killed a Carrion Bat boss.. I couldn’t hit any barrels anymore, the monsters stopped moving, and verily were manifest all the other signs of a disconnect. Then, after I exited the game, I was unable to log back onto Battle.net
Hot and bitter were my lachrymal secretions!
The Diablo III test server is live, but service may be intermittent for the next few hours as we work to address ongoing issues. Thank you for your patience.
